Embryos Alive Founder Bonnie Bernard Attending Prestigious Political Forum in Ft. Lauderdale, FL
CINCINNATI, Sept. 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- An Ohio businesswoman who founded a human embryo adoption agency has been invited to participate in the upcoming Values Voter Presidential Debate, scheduled for Sept. 17 in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Bonnie Bernard of Embryos Alive will attend this political forum as an expert on the topic of frozen embryos and their viability as human life.
The Presidential Debate has been organized by Values Voters (http://www.ValuesVoter.org), a conservative, grassroots organization that promotes Christian values and Constitutional rights as the preferred method of governing in America. Key to the Values Voter mission is the right to life debate, which Bernard has made both her personal and professional crusade.
Embryos Alive (http://www.EmbryosAlive.com) is based in Cincinnati and matches human embryo donors with screened, approved parents for open, agency liaison, and closed adoption.
"Human embryos need a voice in this election, and I am pleased to serve in that capacity," Bernard said.
Bernard will be joined by videotape by Indiana couple Gary and Ronda Hubbard, parents of 2-year-old Joshua and 5-month-old Rachel, two children they adopted as frozen embryos from Embryos Alive. The Hubbards were unable to personally attend the Ft. Lauderdale debate, so their remarks were videotaped by a local TV crew for airing during the actual forum.
"The Hubbard family is living and loving proof that human embryos can not be randomly discarded like yesterday's science project," Bernard states emphatically. "These two beautiful kids are here because their donor parents made the loving choice to nurture and protect them."
Bernard is eager to both observe and learn what the candidates have to say on this important voter issue.
"I am very interested in hearing our candidates' positions on these emotionally charged issues," Bernard said. "Further, I hope to explore the topic of 'frosties' or 'totsicles' -- both terms used to define the estimated 250,000 frozen embryos now in storage at reproductive clinics across the country."
The Values Voter Presidential Debate will be televised nationally at 7:30pm ET on September 17. Check local listings for network broadcast near you.
